Isabelle Thomas, has joined us from the west of Ireland.  She has an undergraduate degree in Psychology and English and a masters degree in Applied Behavior Analysis from the National University of Ireland, Galway. She comes with five years experience working with children, adolescents and adults with various developmental and intellectual disabilities in a range of settings including early intervention schools, mainstream schools, home and community based settings using the principles of behaviour analysis.

Isabelle decided to move to Canada after coming back from a career break which she spent travelling for four months around Southeast Asia with a group of friends, old colleagues and her brother.   “I realised that I was ready to leave (a very small!) Ireland, to push myself out of my comfort zone, experience a new culture and lifestyle and to start building my career overseas. I decided on BC because if it’s diversity, vastness, beautiful landscape, recreational opportunities and culture and on Pivot Point because from the first time I looked at their website I felt welcomed and that my personal and professional viewpoint matched that of theirs.”

 

Meet our BI’s and CCW’s

We have a talented and skilled  team of Behaviour interventionists and Child Care workers in Kamloops, Salmon Arm and Barriere.  Each of them brings their own unique strengths and experiences in the support and therapy they provide.    They have each gone through an extensive hiring process that includes a group interview, reference checks, criminal record check, ABA tier one training and a full orientation.  Our staff work very hard to maintain a flexible schedule so that they are able to meet the needs of each individual they work with.  We try our best to ensure a good fit  with your child, trying to match interests and  experience.

 

About Services in Kamloops

Pivot Point is very excited to introduce our Community Classroom to the community of Kamloops.  It is slated to open September 2017 and provide educational services and support to those children and youth who find it difficult to learn and cope and in a regular public school setting.  

Currently we primarily offer one to one Behaviour Consultation and Behavior Interventions and Child Care Worker services to children age 6 and under, as well as school age children.  We work in families homes or in community settings depending on what works best for the family and child.

We also look forward to providing supports for adults with Diversabilities in our community.  Teaching and facilitating  life skills and providing opportunities for social interaction with peer groups.
